Note: All cars built in Lynch road, Detroit Mi have digits above the letters in second row from top. Typical found over letters Q-Z (not shown on pictured tag) Example 15 over QR and 112 over VWX. First two digits (15) are “gate sequence” #. Second three digits (112) are “base sequence” #. These digits mentioned above are only found on cars from Lynch Road factory. Observation # 2: Sometimes there is no digit at all under X (seat belts). When standard belts were installed, sometimes factory left this info blank.
